This past weekend, Fortress of Solitude attending the inaugural VS Gaming FIFA Tournament, which was well attended by onlookers as well as entrants to the competition.
The VS Gaming event played host to 1,024 e-football players over the weekend at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand. The tournament culminated with the winner, Zuhair Ebrahim Ebrahim (zaZe), coming out on top, having beaten runners up, Brandon Nell (CrypticVortex72), Tebogo Mathopa (Tebza) and Muhammad Zaid Patel (zaidy), to the R500,000 grand prize, from a pool of R1,500,000.
You can view some of the footage from the weekend’s proceedings, which included a host of side activities to keep both players and supporters busy while not competing. Unfortunately, I only managed to make it to the second round where I narrowly lost out, although it would have been a steep mountain to climb given the calibre of players on the day.
